A new exhibit opened today at the Packers Hall of Fame commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc.
The temporary exhibit honors the Packers Hall of Fame Inc.’s role in guiding the Hall for 50 years as a historic national sports venue and educational resource to the Green Bay community and the state of Wisconsin.
Fans viewing the exhibit will learn about the Hall’s evolution from a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena in 1967 to the robust historical archive of today. The exhibit will be accessible to anyone who purchases tickets for the Packers Hall of Fame, located in the Lambeau Field Atrium, and the display can be found on the south end of the ground floor of the Packers Hall of Fame.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. has also announced they will host a special 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Hall of Fame on Saturday, Oct., 21, in the Lambeau Field Atrium, presented by Bellin Health Systems and Network Health.
The evening’s festivities will honor the Packers’ 1967 championship team, and will run from 5 to 9 p.m. The celebration will pay tribute to 50 years of Packers Hall of Fame growth, tracing the history of one of the few team Hall of Fames in the NFL. Several members of the 1967 Packers squad will be in attendance to share stories at the event, and audio and video will describe the Hall’s birth, 1967 and other stories.
The event will be hosted by WTMJ’s Lance Allan, and a gameday-like menu will be served during the event reception.
A limited amount of tickets remain available for the event. Tickets can be purchased online only via Ticketmaster.com at http://pckrs.com/hof50 and are $95 each for general admission. Each guest will receive a gift bag, gameday seat cushion, Hall of Fame collectible pin and more.
